Learning Environments for Tomorrow: Next Practices for Educators and Architects

  • COST


Presented by Harvard University Graduate School of Design

Learning Environments for Tomorrow (LEFT) will explore four key themes emerging as defining elements of 21st century education: collaboration; technology; engagement; and sustainability. Through a research-based understanding of current and emerging best practices, participants will work with Harvard faculty and leading practitioners to envision how school buildings can most effectively support learning in the coming decade and beyond.

Working in teams you will apply your combined understanding to a school-redesign case study and develop provocative prototypes. You will answer questions such as: What are the core 21st century learning goals and programmatic features of this school? What are the guiding design principles that will drive decision-making? What might be the core design patterns and diagrams that would best represent how the goals will be realized?

Instructor: Daniel Gray Wilson, Director, Project Zero, Harvard Graduate School of Education
